Ancient Siam

The Ancient City in Samut Prakan (Muang Boran)

The Lao Song is another group of Thai people which are sometimes called by the different names such as Tai Songdam and Phu Tai. There are a lot of Song villagers living in Phetchaburi and Suphan Buri at present.

The unique characteristic of Lao Song custom can be seen from their traditional houses. Pillars and beams of the structure are made of wood. Used to help support the beams, the wooden pillars are forked so they can fit into the beams. The floor and the walls, however, are built of bamboo. The house is roofed with long grass tied together by vine or rattan (calamus).
